Our Mission

Rise with Resilience is a personal development company that combines self-esteem and body image work with fitness. We are a unique experience that offers a safe space where people from all backgrounds can move their bodies in a judgment free zone. By focusing on how movement makes us feel, we create space for joy, for fun, and for confidence to RISE! In our programs we are constantly moving our bodies, cultivating our minds, improving our physical and mental health, shifting our mindset from how we look to how good moving our bodies is for us, and most importantly we’re having a good time!

Weight, height, age, gender identity, race; these are only some of the numerous ways you might feel at odds with your body, and the fitness industry and diet industries certainly don’t help. Bodies change, bodies fluctuate. We go through tough times. We are constantly faced with adversity, discrimination. But guess what… we are RESILIENT.


This is your time to celebrate all that you have been through and indulge in fitness that is empowering. You deserve it.

Rise with Resilience Mission Statement

Jenni Morse

Hi there! My name is Jenni, and I started Rise with Resilience with the mission of making body image a “non-issue” for all. I know firsthand how mentally draining it is to be constantly surrounded by messages to hate your body. As a long time fitness professional and former dancer, I always found it hard to find a community that was truly uplifting, empowering, and body neutral – so I created that community myself! Fitness has always been my own personal source of empowerment, so now I aim to heal other's negative body image through movement, because (and as I always tell my clients) fitness is fun, and fitness feels good!

Originally from Toronto, I spent 10 years touring Canada and the United States with several professional dance companies. In 2013 I moved to Montreal to further pursue my career in dance. It was here that I discovered Zumba and a newfound passion for bringing joy to people’s lives through movement! Since propelling myself into the fitness industry, I have hosted numerous Zumba Fitness parties and fundraisers, taught at several of Montreal’s most popular fitness clubs, and helped countless men and women to feel strong, fit, and confident, both online and in person!

My work with Rise with Resilience has taken me many places, but currently my focus is on offering body image workshops for businesses, schools, and non-profit organizations in Ontario and Quebec, as well as at home personal training in downtown Montreal, Nun’s Island, and Brossard.


Lourdes Diaz


Lourdes is a Guatemalan born and raised, and became a Rise with Resilience team member in 2022. She went to law school in one of the private universities of Guatemala. Like many, she had to work to be able to pay for her studies and that's how she became a freelance digital marketing specialist and never looked back.

Lourdes helps us out with marketing and admin work but she also shares a love for exercising and is an avid hiker and camper who loves to explore the volcanoes and mountains near her.
